Implement classroom research to develop effective practices in literacy instruction!

Teaching reading skills effectively can be a complex and challenging process for many educators. Theresa A. Deeney provides a detailed primer that illustrates how to create and implement classroom research projects focused on assessing and strengthening literacy instruction.

Improving Literacy With Classroom Research presents a comprehensive overview of the classroom research cycle, which involves noticing a problem, initiating an inquiry, planning for and implementing change, analyzing and reflecting on the results, and developing an action plan. The author includes:

  • Guidelines, charts, tables, and information to help educators initiate their own projects
  • Recommendations for collecting and analyzing data
  • Research about five core areas of reading instruction—phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension
  • Examples of authentic teacher research projects focused on literacy skills and instructional practices
